  • 2011 Allocation Order

With all the talk of Kenny Cooper coming back to MLS to play for Portland, a couple readers asked if I would post the current allocation order. Now some folks will wonder why Portland can get Cooper if he does return, its simple, FC Dallas made an offer before he left for Germany a couple years ago so they no longer hold his player rights here in MLS. So he’s a free man so to speak.

Below is the current order which will likely get updated one or twice more this winter. Just remember its its a worst to first kind of order with expansion clubs getting first crack when they join. Vancouver used up their number one slot when they signed Jay DeMerit.

  1. Portland Timbers
  2. D.C. United
  3. Chivas USA
  4. Philadelphia Union
  5. New England Revolution
  6. Houston Dynamo
  7. Toronto FC
  8. Chicago Fire
  9. Sporting Kansas City
  10. Seattle Sounders FC
  11. Columbus Crew
  12. New York Red Bulls
  13. Real Salt Lake
  14. San Jose Earthquakes
  15. LA Galaxy
  16. FC Dallas
  17. Colorado Rapids
  18. Vancouver Whitecaps (Jay DeMerit)
  • So now the question is, who does DC United go for? Or Chivas USA?

    Is there a Fraser/Vanney- Bocanegra connection?
